BULL / B4234; typewritten text, on reverse, center, in black: ROBERT YOUNG... Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer star, who will be seen / next in a comedy dual role in "Honolulu," elaborate dance / musical, starring Eleanor Powell. Bob is one of the most / verstaile stars in Hollywood. He leaps blithely from drama / to comedy, to musical farce and back again with the facility / of a thespic gazelle. His role in "The Shining Hour," with / Joan Crawford, which preceded "Honolulu," was distinctly / dramatic and on the "heavy" side. In "Honolulu" his assignment / is pure farce. He is equally capable in either medium.
